Trying too hard.

You weren't supposed to reply back,
You weren't supposed to be nice,
You weren't supposed to come back into my life. 

I was trying to push you away,
And pushed away you were,
The thoughts of you bugged me,
Just the way you were. 

The way you dressed,
Spoke,
Handled a situation. 
The way you behaved,
Understood
Bullied a student. 

Your unruly hair,
With the beard too. 
Your baggy jeans,
With the empty torn pockets too. 

You would ruffle your hand through your hair, 
Thinking it was cool. 
Would push your hands down into your pockets, 
Trying so hard to be a dude.

But trust me my dear,
It couldn't be clearer,
You were trying to fit in,
Being normal
While I was being different,
Flying like an eagle.
